A Time for all Seasons- Spring

Spring is officially here in Australia, we managed to get through winter without too much cold weather I think.

I enjoyed making the Spring blocks for my latest quilt A Time for all Seasons.

I started the spring section with a sunrise to represent new beginnings.

Here is a detail photo of the block.

I put a nest in the sunrise block to also represent new beginnings.

I did a blog post all about how I made the nest and you can read about it by clicking here.

I had to include a blossom tree in my Spring section because it is always so exciting to see the blossom trees come to life and I realise that the fine, sunny weather is approaching.

Where I live we also have a lot of windy days in Spring so in my next block I tried to represent the wind.

I tried to keep the corner of the Spring section light and breezy.

Here is a photo of the Spring section from the centre of the quilt in the clock section. I included butterflies and bees as well as some spring flowers.

It's always good to feel some sun and notice the days getting slightly longer.

Bye for now,
